The source of the kernel of Standalone Native Oberon is not available but
the rest is there. The following are extracts from the readme file of ETH
Native Oberon System 3 Release 2.3.6 (Stand-alone):

"In addition, the following optional packages are available. They
are installed from within Oberon (not Oberon-0)."
"Source code: Full sources of the system, excluding the Kernel and
some beta code"

The files are:
